From its many temporal and sexual kinks, the story suggests that Mr. Heinlein was looking to dust off H. G. Wells's time-travel machinations with some 1950s-style transgender sizzle borrowed from one of the tale's touchstones, Christine Jorgensen. This …

2012 Waterburys Spirit Awardee Publishes Second Book on Waterbury

Read this latest announcement about: 1950s Dresses

WATERBURY, Conn. (PRWEB) June 20, 2013

From Bettejane Synott Wesson, recipient of Waterburys Spirit Award and author of The View from Cracker Hill, a memoir of 1950s Waterbury told from the point of a young girl, comes more stories revolving around the once Brass Capital of the World. Knowing there were still many more stories that readers would learn from, she publishes her second book, titled Bold As Brass.

I do not think that there are other books like mine, set in the past but with characters so fresh and believable and timely in their aspirations, states Wesson. I think my readers will identify with my characters, that my stories will be springboards for the readers to their own pasts, to the good times they remember with their own families. In my opinion, [it] is a feel good collection of stories that we all could use in these troubled times.

Wessons latest work is a collection of two dozen stories that present an intimate and tender look back into the lives of the working class of Waterbury, Conn. when Brass City was still a busy factory town. History with a personal twist, this glimpse into past lives imagined by the author rings as true today as it did way back when. Its recurring theme revolves around ordinary people finding their way in the world, making lives and also making sense of them, something every person does.

Its stories span several years. The first story is set in 1932. The last stories are in the Eisenhower years. The main characters are an extended Irish Catholic family consisting of parents, four grandparents, and two young girls. Betty is the main protagonist in many of the stories, including the first story Buckingham Palace. It is a remark her aunt makes to Betty, that she is as bold as brass, that gives the book its title.

An easy read, and filled with characters that not only exemplify the American dream of moving up in the world and bettering ones lives, but also exude sympathy and at times quite funny, Bold As Brass is a book easy to identify with. Readers will see something of themselves in the characters experiences, in their ambitions and dreams.

Wesson shares the Saturday Night Swells line at the end of the story where Betty has seen the factory works all dressed up for the Saturday night dance is a good one: This notion of Bettys is perhaps just wishful thinking. But still, knowing that ordinary people can have extraordinary moments is a wonderful discovery.
